lyrics

Dusty Old Blues - Sven Fredheim/Frank Smith
 I started out young
Then I boarded the boat
Then I started to float
Without singing a note
And you came to believe in me
Then you came to believe in me
 
Haven't you heard when I sung like a bird?
Why can't you see to believe in me?
All you peruse are my dusty old blues
And my worn out shoes
Would you grieve for me?
Oooh ooh would you grieve for me?
Ooooh ooh would you grieve for me?

Pour whiskey down
For this tortured new song
Scars on the page
With each stroke
Of the pen
You refused to believe in me
You refused to believe in me

All you peruse are my dusty old blues
And my worn out shoes
Would you grieve for me?
Haven't you heard that I soared like a bird
Why can't you see to believe in me?
 
Oooh ooh to believe in me
Oooooh ooh to believe in me
Solo
Ooooh ooh ooh to believe in me
Oooh ooh ooh would you grieve for me
